Pharmacy - Top 50 Most-filled Prescriptions

Guess the top 50 most-filled prescriptions of 2021. You can guess either the brand or generic name. I've provided hints about the disease state or type of medication.
Data obtained from SingleCare, a discount prescription plan, so the list may be skewed away from medications typically paid for in cash.

Where are these statistics coming from? There's no malarial treatment on the list so I doubt that they are valid World-wide. If they are limited to a partiucalr geographic area then you really ought to say so in the title.

Thank you for asking! These came from an insurance database, so you're right, there is probably a bit of bias against medications typically paid for in cash. I will add that to the description.
